Federal agencies are rushing out a final volley of executive actions in the last two months of Barack Obama’s presidency, despite warnings from Republicans in Congress and the reality that Donald Trump will have the power to erase much of their handiwork after Jan. 20.

Regulations on commodities speculation, air pollution from the oil industry, doctors’ Medicare drug payments and high-skilled immigrant workers are among the rules moving through the pipeline as Obama’s administration grasps at one last chance to cement his legacy. So are regulations tightening states’ oversight of online colleges and protecting funding for Planned Parenthood.

The good news is that Republicans can stop most of what Obama is about to do. I don't care how much of a partisan you are, the story above describes why unopposed rule by one party is not a good idea in the long term. Things can get out of hand too easily.

Thank goodness for the Congressional Review Act. That is a brilliant piece of legislation. There are people in Washington with a good head on their shoulders who actually want to make the system better.

Quoting from the article linked above:

"As many as 98 final regulations under review at the White House as of Nov. 15 could be implemented before Trump takes office."

Does that strike anyone else as being beyond belief? At the rate that new laws and regulations are being added, it won't be possible to exist in society without breaking them constantly someday. Some claim we have already reached that point. Does anyone really want to live in a world like that?

It takes some time to get an order/action up and running (bureaucracy-wise, potentially staffing-wise, etc).

Let him push through whatever he want's (as nauseating as it may be). In the same amount of time it takes Obama to sign.... is exactly how long it will take Trump to sign the cancellations (give or take).

What's your definition of "in the long term"? I believe unopposed rule by one party can be good in some cases, but it shouldn't last too long.

Obama's not going to do a dam thing.

The spineless wimp didn't have the courage to do anything when he had some power what makes you think he's going to do anything now

That means next to nothing. People always get worked up over things he does with the word "executive" in it. It is like they don't have any idea that only "executive orderers" truly matter.



Executive actions are any informal proposals or moves by the president. The term executive action itself is vague and can be used to describe almost anything the president calls on Congress or his administration to do. But most executive actions carry no legal weight.




executive order

a rule or order issued by the president to an executive branch of the government and having the force of law.


Why do people get huffy and puffy over executive actions? Are they really that clueless?

Most saw this coming long ago, the grand ones exit legacy. Understanding that BHO was blindsided by the election also gives a lot of perspective. He was counting on HRC paving his way to the UN presidency, after transferring internet control there he was counting on his minions here continuing the beating of free thinkers. This will show on some of his EOs, there will be a pattern. Hi pardoning of HRC will happen after the JD issues its charges, quietly. He has to leave a smokescreen, and it will be to his advantage and Michelle's, they want her as the next leader of the dems, and they can rule the morons from both fronts......

Barack Obama must be attempting to catch up to Bill Clinton.. Still needs about 120 more Executive Orders/Actions.

a reply to: carewemust its not the total count, but the effect of extreme regulations and power shifting, even if it does not seem clear on the surface. BHO wants the UN....watch him play it.......

They must hate Obama no matter what he does. No matter what the DEM do the Right must be against it. It is the most disturbing thing around. Trump gets elected and top DEM say they are willing to work with him on some things. GOP after Obama elected said they would work with Obama on nothing and work to make him a one term president by undermining him.

Are you serious? Have you, um, met people?

Most are operating in the double-digit IQ range, regardless of their "job."

Proof?: PE Trump just inadvertently made Jill Stein's point for her when he tweeted that "millions" voted for Hillary illegally.

I'm all for giving the guy a shot, but come on. Someone needs to take control over his tweets. It's embarrassing.

a reply to: Pyle you are correct, we are taught to be divided, and not see the forest. This is just the same crap with a different smell, But somethings are just so damn predictable....and Do you like the people/policies of the right?, you are part of the division also...we are divided by design.....

Consistent with how right he always arrogantly seems to thinks he is, I guess he also assumes Trump can't read.

What can be done by pen, can be undone by pen.

Many who get huffy and puffy are the same people who think Obama has issued more Executive Orders than any president before him. In reality, he's issued less than most presidents going back to Theodore Roosevelt.
